The whole Youtube creator community globally tune in to Youtube Streamys Awards on December 11. The award-giving body honors the accomplishments of excellent online videos and the creators behind them. These individuals make up some of the most innovative and well-watched programming in the world. The live Streamy Awards broadcast is attended by creators with aggregate audiences in the hundreds of millions and is watched by millions of fans worldwide.

There are forty-five awards categories and one of them is Science and Technology. Through this post, the Being an Engineer podcast celebrates the Youtube Streamys Awards Nominees Mark Rober, Simone Giertz, Stuff Made Here, Unnecessary Inventions and William Osman.

Being An Engineer Podcast host Aaron Moncur and co-host Rafael Testai would like to congratulate these amazing content creators. In line with the podcast’s mission of sharing the stories of engineers with valuable contributions to the community, therefore, we invite you to celebrate these amazing inventors. Check out their respective Youtube channels linked below. 

Mark Rober

With over 20 million subscribers, mechanical engineer Mark Rober’s YouTube channel is full of many interesting things. From DIY gadgets, fun science experiments, to science classes—this channel has everything. He describes himself as a “Former NASA and Apple engineer. Current YouTuber and friend of science.”

Youtube Channel Description:

1) I studied Mechanical Engineering in School. I did my undergrad at BYU and Masters at USC.
2) I worked for NASA JPL for 9 years, 7 of which were working on the Curiosity Rover (I made a video about it you should def totes watch cause it’s probably my favorite of all my videos). Then I created Digital Dudz (made some videos about this too) and eventually sold it after 2 years. Then I worked for Apple in their Special Projects Group doing Product Design as a Mechanical Engineer for 5 years. As of 2019, I just make my monthly YouTube videos.
3) Link to free and therefore substandard build plans for my custom workbench can be found below.
4) I made a 30 Day Creative Engineering Class that teaches my end to end engineering process so you can make stuff too! Check it out here-

Simone Giertz

An inventor in her own right, Simone’s channel is full of quirky creations. Check out this fan-favorite video, where Simone and her team turned her Tesla car into a pickup truck: Truckla, the world’s first Tesla pickup truck. To sum up, Truckla got a nod from Elon Musk himself.

She describes herself as “Inventor and breaker of things. Swedish but sound American just to confuse you.”

Stuff Made Here

Having gained 3.5 million subscribers after the channel got launched last year, Stuff Made Here is a channel that features robots and some more cool and fun inventions. Shane Wighton is the man behind this amazing channel. Their videos are non-engineers friendly, too. Therefore, If you’re a visual person, you’d absolutely love this channel. 

Youtube Channel Description:

“I’ve been building things for as long as I can remember. It all started when my dad exposed me to plastic model building and soldering when I was around 4 years old. That set me on a path to building increasingly complex things and becoming an engineer. My goal is to do the same for as many people as possible by exposing them to the joy of engineering, fabricating and creating things out of nothing. If I’m lucky a few people may become engineers, which would be great for the world. Engineering is awesome.”

Unnecessary Inventions

Some might agree that Unnecessary Inventions invents solutions to non-existent problems. Regardless, we can assure that you can definitely pick up a tip or two about the production (not to mention the process of making each project is so fun). The owner of the channel, inventor Matty Benedetto, utilizes 3D printing in many of his videos. 

Youtube Channel Description:

Unnecessary Inventions is the brainchild of inventor and evil genius Matty Benedetto. Over the past two years, he has designed and fully prototyped over 275 new inventions that solve problems that don’t exist. Each week from the Unnecessary Design Studio in Burlington Vermont, Matty develops 1-3 brand new fake consumer products using diverse production methods from 3D printing, sewing, mold making, wood working, laser cutter, and whatever else he can get his hands on.

His invention lives across Unnecessary Invention’s social profiles which have grown to a community of over 6 million followers. His post mimics a real marketing campaign with their signature product photos and commercials alongside behind the scenes videos on how the inventions get built.

Look at Matty’s video of a candy-dispensing iPhone Case.

William Osman 

Last but not least is William Osman’s channel, which is full of “crappy robots”, laser-related experiments, life hacks, and many more. Meanwhile, William is an engineer of his own right. He definitely used this to his advantage to make his own X-ray machine, chainsaw, tattoo machine, and many other things. In addition, creates these projects at  home, by the way.

Youtube Channel Description:

Hi, it’s me! Dubious quality. Questionable integrity. Unethical delivery. Sometimes the best lessons teach what not to do.

Jeremy Fielding,  Streamys Creator Honors Winner (another category)


“My goal is simple. Draw people to mechanical engineering with amazing projects, Inspire them with ideas, then teach them how to do it. 

I am fascinated with all things mechanical, but also cover some electrical, and electronics as well.” 

Jeremy is an engineer who loves to turn ideas into amazing projects—and show others how they’re done. If you’re someone who has a fascination for wiring electric motors, Jeremy’s channel is definitely a must-check. And apparently, as many fans say (many of them are engineering students), Jeremy has a knack of turning what may seem to be really complicated engineering principles into something easy to understand. 

Check his Introduction to Motors Series, which many fans really like.
